Emperor Joseph II : My dear young (Wo)man, don't take it too hard. Your work is ingenious. It's quality work. And there are simply too many notes, that's all. Just cut a few and it will be perfect.. . . .

Actually, I agree. Fantastic it was. Still too much demostration of technical brilliance.

There was Mozart, but also an obvious inspiration from ragtime. This was much more interesting than ragtime, but I think music can be evaluated similarily to writing: wordyness and notyness(??) is not to strive for. Melody (and often rhythm below), or simply chord progressions (like in some of Bach's work) is more interesting than technical brilliance with some rhythm on top.

Still she deserved the "bravo" shouted from the audience. I wonder how many hours went into that particular piece, there are several videos of her playing it. And it was lovely to see a musician enjoying to play in front of an audience.
